What's New

COMING SOON - New Library Catalogue

Published Date: 14th September 2023


We have joined a consortium of 19 NHS trusts across the North West to implement a new, joint library management system.

What does it mean for you?

  • When you search the new library catalogue you will see the library stock of all 19 libraries. You can choose to filter your search to see what is available here or you could request an item from one of our partner libraries be sent here for you to borrow.
  • You will now be able to borrow even more books. The changes mean that the number of books you can borrow at a time will go up to 12 items for 4 weeks.
  • Books will be automatically renewed up to 5 times (as long as they have not been reserved, your account is still active and you don't have any overdue or lost items).
  • You will be able to login to your library account online and update your details, view and renew your loans, and request items.
  • If you move to work at another trust in the consortium there is no need to re-register, just update your details and let your new library know!



We will email all current library members with instructions on how to access the new system when it goes live on Wednesday 27th September 2023.

If you have any questions either pop into the library and speak to a member of the Team or contact us here https://www.knowledge-nw.nhs.uk/contact-us
